Frequently Asked Questions

What flowers can be used in Petal a Memory’s dried flower mats?

The foundation of our dried flower matting is always crafted using rose petals and leaves. In building on that graceful foundation, any flower can be used for decoration.

What if I don’t have any roses, or not enough roses for the size mat I want?

We can supply all the roses needed (for a modest additional charge).

Family portrait in matteWe will need 4-5 roses for each of the 5 x 7 mats and 7-9 roses for the 8 x 10 mats. For crafting the decorative overlay of blossoms, as many flowers as you can supply.

How soon do you need my flowers?

The sooner we receive your flowers the sooner we can get started on your order. We like to have your flowers as soon after the event as possible or when they start to wilt.

Do the flower mats come in frames?

The prices displayed on the website do not include frames. Our 5 x 7 mattings fit in most standard frames for their size, and we can frame mattings using frames that you supply. We can make arrangements to have your mattings custom framed at an additional cost. We also sell frames starting at $5.00.

What if my flowers are already dried?

We can still work with them.  We would need to see them to determine what we can do.  We have worked with flowers that were 27 years old. 

What should I do with my flowers after my special event?

Do not refrigerate your flowers! Simply let the bouquet sit out or let flowers sit in an un-watered vase until the flowers begin to dry. You can send them or drop off the flowers at Petal a Memory as soon as you can and we will completely dry them for you.
